Notes and Editorial Reviews

As a specialist in late Romanticism many still consider Karajan's magnificent Bruckner cycle to be the benchmark by which all must be judged. Karajan's instinctive ability to selectively shape phrasing and subtly gradate momentum shifts within movements in order to heighten orchestral tension is unparalleled. The Berlin Philharmonic were also on top of their game during this period and respond with spellbinding clarity and precision. Deutsche Grammophon's rich, full-bodied sonics compliment this remarkable achievement famously.
